Welch Statement on Las Vegas Shooting

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) issued the following statement in response to the deadly shooting in Las Vegas:

"I know I join all Vermonters in reacting with horror and utter disbelief to the slaughter of innocent life in Las Vegas early this morning. It's hard for any of us to imagine the sheer terror experienced by concertgoers running for their lives, unsure of the depraved shooter's location. It's hard to imagine the inconsolable grief being experienced by the families of the victims. And it's hard to fathom the inaction of Congress in the face of so many mass shootings in this country. What will it take to pass common sense gun laws that take guns out of the hands of people who should not have them? We pray for those injured and killed. And we are grateful yet again for the brave first responders who stopped the shooter and selflessly came to the aid of hundreds of innocent victims."
